In their latest newsletter, Matador Records lashed out at Paste Magazine for refusing to run the Stephen Malkmus ad featured on the left:
"[W]e'd like to offer a shout-out (ie. "fuck you") to the cowards and thought-cops at the Ad Dept at Paste Magazine who have deemed our proposed advertisement for 'Face The Truth' to be beyond the bounds of "good taste." God forbid that anything might challenge the sensibilities of Paste's Yep Roc-loving, Starbucks-guzzling, Wes Anderson-worshipping readership. Seriously, if there's anything we or SM have done that is a poor fit with Paste's Ad Dept's narrow worldview, that is the highest compliment we've been paid since the last time Spin refused to run one of our ads."
My love for Matador and Malkmus just grew exponentially. *Swoon* Seriously though, isn't just about anything Christina Aguilera does more offensive than what you see to your left?
